    I went to Chrome help and I did what it said to do to enable spell checking and it now works, both the spell and grammar checkers now work.

    Glad Harsh asked that question.

    This was discovered right out of the gates when the transition was engaged. Another one of those things that made it past the testers that makes you go huh.

    Add me to the Me Too of the Mozilla FireFox Spell Checker not working.

    FF v23 was giving problems. Had to do a wipe clean re-install. That cause me to lose the Spell Checker on this forum.

    I remembered there was a simple answer, but had no idea where it was. This post should make my next time a little easier.

    If you reinstalled Firefox you need to:.

    Go to Options, Advanced and check the box for Check my spelling as I type.


    Then,
    When you are typing in a reply, Right click and then go to Languages on the pop up menu and choose English. It should work then.

    You'd think the companies that design the software upgrades could do something that would cause the spell checkers to remain as they were before the upgrades. How hard can that be?

    I think they do, but, he said he did a wipe and reinstall. That would be like brand new instead of an upgrade.

    When I lost my Chrome spell checker I think it happened right after a Windows upgrade. I dunno. Not a big deal now that I know how to fix it.
